It's not a random choice of groups at all, it's where common code will
get grouped together the most.
Drivers that fit into 8390, tulip, or lance categories will go into
those directories. Which would include a lance ISA driver. After that,
you still have a ton of ISA and 3com drivers left over which are not
often used. Thus, the isa and 3com subdirectories.
